New Book with Original Art by Andreas C Chrysafis

Andreas C. Chrysafis Art – Volume 1: Each Painting Tells a Story is a collection of original oil paintings by Chrysafis in a new, hardcover, coffee table book. It features the artist’s thoughtful, thought-provoking, and vibrant paintings, published by the UK’s Evandia Publishing. Full of original artwork, the book takes the viewer on a journey into a world of wonderful colors, artistry, and passion. Each painting is enhanced by expressive captions by the artist and author.

Among the many paintings included in the book is Tropicanza, highlighting Chrysafis’ talent for depicting nature with ponds, swans, and flowers. Akamas in Bloom is another work in the volume that takes the viewer into the realm of the imagination and senses of a breathtaking natural environment with beautiful narcissus, anemones, cyclamen, and an abundance of rare flowers.

The book provides a fine introduction to Chrysafis’ work and inspiration in one volume. As noted in the news release, “Each canvas tells its own story: a story that, for some, not only triggers awe, but also a lively debate about these innovative paintings.”

Distributed via Ingram Global Distribution Network, the book is available online and in bookstores worldwide.
